Gender Equality

Mainstreaming gender equality and women’s and girls’ empowerment


Gender equality is a human right, a prerequisite and driver for poverty reduction and sustainable development. Gender equality is achieved when women and men, girls and boys, in all their diversity, have equal rights, life prospects and opportunities and the same power to shape their own lives. As one of the main thematic priorities for Swedish development cooperation, a gender equality perspective shall permeate all of Sida’s work, at all levels and at all stages throughout preparation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
